Not long ago, small businesses flourished on East 6th Street. Now many are struggling, closed or gone. Once, the only homeless people here were transients waiting to catch the next freight train to the coast. Now the street has homeless men, women and children with nowhere to go. Corona's onetime retail center is in trouble.

An Indio homeless shelter--the only walk-in, overnight shelter in the area--announced Wednesday that it will reopen, a month after it was forced to close following accusations that the facility's former director defrauded the organization of $400,000. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, the only such shelter between Blythe and Banning, will open its doors again, following a widespread fund-raising effort in the Coachella Valley, officials said.

City officials will allow a pastor to continue operating a homeless shelter from his storefront ministry until a new facility outside the downtown area can be found. The Rev. Timothy Waisanen, the pastor of Corona Christian Fellowship, came under fire from business owners on East 6th Street who said the shelter attracted transients and panhandlers to the downtown area and hurt their operations. Business leaders had called on the City Council to relocate the facility.

A city committee has proposed that a church-operated shelter opposed by area business leaders be moved in the next six months from downtown to a house next to an industrial park. The 17-member committee, formed in August, has been looking at a house on Blaine Street, east of Main Street and north of the Riverside Freeway, as a new shelter site.

The 1990 U.S. Census began Tuesday night on a somber note, as census takers set out to measure the size of one of a successful nation's most conspicuous failures--its population of homeless citizens. With a budget of $2.7 million and a staff approaching 15,000, the U.S. Census Bureau attempted to count on one night a population that could number in the millions.

"When you're middle class and a professional with no job or a place to stay, it can be harder than being poor," said Valerie N., recounting her ordeal as a homeless person. "One feels so helpless . . . and isolated." Eighteen months ago Valerie's world seemed on the verge of collapse.
